New Reveal : 2010 Buick LaCrosse revealed ahead of Detroit Auto Show

GM has released images and details of the 2010 Buick LaCrosse, just days before the car makes its official debut at the Detroit Auto Show. It was first seen at the Beijing Motor Show in 2008, in the Invicta Concept name.
LaCrosse is built on the revised Epsilon II architecture, just like the Opel Insignia.
Although it is very similar to Opel Insignia, it also has similar style outside-and-inside to other premium class sedans, such as Japanese Lexus GS or Acura TL. 2010 LaCrosse will be offered in three models - CX, CXL and CXS.
Engine choises include two direct-injected V6 engines. CX and CXL models are powered by the new 3.0L V6, that has 255hp and 211lb-ft of torque. CXL has an optional AWD system. Top of the line CXS gets a 3.6L V6 with 280hp and 261lb-ft.
2010 LaCrosse production will begin this summer at the Fairfax Assembly facility in Kansas City. No word on prices, but we expect it around the $25,000 - $30,000 range. If this is true, then the LaCrosse will surely get into serious competition with other premium class sedans.
